The firm revealed that the handheld, which was released early last year, is no longer being sold below manufacturing costs.
The news comes alongside Nintendo's latest quarterly financial results leading up to June 30.
While the firm is still reporting losses, net sales are higher than those for the same period last year.
Global sales of 3DS hardware increased by 162%, with 19 million units sold in total since launch.
Meanwhile, software sales rose by 63%, with a total of 52 million lifetime units sold.
Elsewhere the latest lifetime sales for the original DS and the Wii were revealed, shipping 152m and 96m units respectively.
Nintendo revealed the first losses in the company's history in April, blaming a weak Yen and competition from smartphones.
Revamped 3DS hardware, the XL, will launch this Friday (July 27) in Europe.
